Lone Star College, located in north Houston, was put on lockdown Tuesday after several people were shot and injured on campus, a local Fox affiliate reports.

One person is reportedly in custody and police are in pursuit of another potential shooter on the run.

Three victims were transported from the campus to area hospitals and the extent of their injuries could be, in certain cases, serious according to reports. Moments after the shooting, students could be seen being led out of the sprawling campus with their hands on their heads. Police SWAT teams were searching the campus

Reports indicate that the shooting may have arisen after a fight broke out between two people, at least one of them armed.
